From a Student (now a Teacher)

Just like a potter that takes the fresh, raw clay in his hands, Ray took us naive, fledgling bird/potters and formed a bunch of vibrant, enthusiastic artist/teachers who will pass on his legacy of clay to the next generation. He told me that I couldn't quit the art education program, and in large part, because of his faith in me, I kept going and am still teaching to this day.

I feel so lucky that I was a student of Rays. I will treasure his famous raku lady pot and his pressed slab box that he marked low enough so us poor students could afford them.

Thank you Professor Grimm for the direction of a life-time.
